  • 1 ¼ lbs. sweet potatoes about 2 medium-sized
  • 2 Tbsp. flour
  • ½ tsp. garlic powder
  • ½ tsp. paprika
  • ¼ tsp. cumin
  • ¾ tsp. salt to taste
  • ¼ tsp. black pepper to taste
  • 1 egg whisked
  • 2 Tbsp. butter or oil


  1. Peel sweet potatoes with a vegetable peeler and then shred them in either a large food processor or by using a handheld cheese grater. You should end up with roughly 6 cups of shredded potatoes.
  2. Combine the shredded sweet potatoes with the flour and seasonings in a large bowl. Toss until the potatoes are well coated.
  3. Pour in the egg and mix until all of the shredded potatoes are covered.
  4. Add 1 tablespoon of butter or oil to a cast-iron skillet over medium-heat and wait until it has melted. Scoop out ~⅓ cup of the shredded potato mixture using a measuring cup and place it onto the heated skillet. Cook no more than 3 hash browns at a time and make sure none of the edges are touching.
  5. Press each mound of shredded potatoes down with the back of a spatula until it is about ½-inch thick. Cook for 4-5 minutes per side, being careful not to flip it until a nice crust forms.
  6. Repeat this with the remaining butter and the remaining hash brown mixture.
  7. Serve immediately with a sprinkle of chopped chives and sour cream. Enjoy!
